Bacopa monniera, also referred to as Bacopa monnieri, Herpestis monniera, water hyssop, and “Brahmi,” has been used in the Ayurvedic (Indian) and Chinese system of medicine for centuries. Traditionally, it was used to enhance memory, learning, and concentration, and to help with anxiety or seizure disorders. Bacopa has also been used as a cardiac tonic, digestive aid, and to improve respiratory function in asthma. Recent research has focused primarily on Bacopa’s enhancement of cognitive function (thought processing), specifically memory, learning, and concentration, and recent research supports the traditional Ayurvedic claims.

How may Bacopa work?
Bacopa has many compounds that are responsible for the pharmacological effects including alkaloids, saponins, and sterols. The constituents responsible for Bacopa’s cognitive effects are bacosides A and B which help repair damaged nerve cells and improve nerve impulse transmission. Nerve impulse transmission plays a vital role in promoting healthy cognitive functions like attention span, focus, concentration, learning, and memory.
It has been shown that the bacosides present in the Bacopa can cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and its bioavailability in the brain has been confirmed, including the activation of the cascade which participates in the memory-enhancing mechanism.
